Allt Arais is a bed and breakfast located on the picturesque Hebridean Isle of Raasay, run by Anda and Ronnie Nicolson. The Isle of Raasay lies off of the east coast of the Isle of Skye, accessible by a regular 25 minute CalMac ferry service.
Our luxury bed and breakfast accommodation is centrally located on the island, just outside of the main village of Inverarish. Allt Arais is easily accessible from the ferry terminal, is on the door step of local amenities and offers easy access to walking routes, tourist attractions and Raasay House bar and restaurant.
Our 3 luxury ensuite bedrooms feature contemporary decor and modern touches including free WiFi throughout. 2 of our bedrooms offer views over the Sound of Raasay to the Cuillin mountain range on the Isle of Skye.
A continental or cooked Scottish breakfast is included each morning of your stay. All guests staying with us have access our cosy lounge with wood burning stove, tv with Freeview and a range of local guides and other reading materials, as well as the sun room which offers views over to the Isle of Skye.
The Isle of Raasay, one of the Inner Hebrides, is located between the Isle of Skye and Applecross on the Scottish mainland of Wester Ross. Raasay is well connected to the Isle of Skye by a short 25 minute scenic ferry connecting Sconser ferry terminal on Skye to Churchton Bay ferry terminal on Raasay.
Raasay is ideally suited to those with a love of the outdoors and wildlife, with excellent walks and trails where one can experience the peace and tranquility of the island.
We recently stayed for two nights at Allt Arais on the beautiful Island of Raasay. Mrs Nicolson was very welcoming and offers a very well appointed B&B in a wonderful location. Our room was large and well furnished with a good size en suite all of which was well decorated and exceptionally clean. We had a wonderful view from our window with the mountains of Skye as the backdrop. Breakfast was very well presented and the choice including the “full Scottish” was up to fine hotel standard. If you like wonderful scenery in a peaceful location then I have no hesitation in recommending Allt Arais as the place to stay.
We spent 4 nights at Allt Arais and it is excellent. Everything is superb quality and to the highest of standards. Anda is a great host and extremely helpful. Go and find out for yourself, you won’t be disappointed.
This was our second stay at Anda’s welcoming and comfortable B&B. The consistently high standard of our accommodation included freshly cooked full Scottish breakfasts, comfortable, spacious and spotless rooms, and modern bathrooms (including a bath). There is a communal lounge room, with views of Skye and the sea, plenty of parking space and easy access to the Ferry Terminal, Raasay House and the Distillery, by car, or a fifteen minute walk. Thank you Anda for looking after us so well, in your beautiful home on the Isle of Raasay.
Absolutely beautiful island. Fantastic views and a fabulous bed and breakfast. We were welcomed on the door step with a lovely smile and felt at home straight away. Our rooms were very clean well decorated and a very comfortable bed. Our two night stay was the highlight of our Scottish holiday.
This was my second stay at Allt Arais, and I was happy to return to this delightful spot. Anda cooks a wonderful breakfast, the rooms are comfortable and very clean, water pressure in the shower is terrific, and the views are exceptional. I hope to return!
I stayed for a couple of nights and found everything very comfortable – lovely spacious room, comfortable bed, fabulous views from the bedrooms, good shower, all spotlessly clean and excellent breakfast. Thanks!
We really wanted to stay on Skye but everything was booked. We are so glad we found Allt Arais on the Isle of Raasay which is just a 25 minute ferry ride away. The room was beautiful, spacious, and very up to date. We had views of sheep and the mountains. Breakfast was beyond our expectations. Just so much thought and detail into taking care of her guests. Thank you Anda! I hope to be back soon!!
We were booked in last minute and our experience was incredible! The views are breathtaking, the room is 5 star and immaculate, better than any hotel I have ever seen. The owner could not be more helpful, and the breakfast is delicious! The whole experience was amazing, it was my husband’s favourite part of the holiday! We will be back
From the warm welcome by Anda, to the comfortable, clean rooms with amazing views to the delicious breakfast this was a perfect place to stay. I’ll be back the next time I get the opportunity to visit this wonderful island.
Fresh, clean, comfortable, modern, spacious, ground floor only, Excellent breakfast. Good bed and bathroom facilities, best shower, appreciated quality of care and environment, easy access and parking, and great view of sea. Couldn’t ask for more in a B&B
